A Choreography of Contagion: Absence and Presence of Black Bodies in Visual Culture explores how people of African descent have been represented in public health campaigns. The traveling exhibit features a collage of early 20th century newspaper prints and images from private institutions, health journals and popular media alongside modern health campaigns involving global epidemics from cholera to Ebola and HIV/AIDS to malaria.

Presented by the UIC African-American Cultural Center.
